Learn to make Kombucha Tea with Shane and Meaghan Carpenter, Food Alchemists and Founder’s of HEX Ferments. A Baltimore based fermented foods company. Meaghan and Shane will take us through the history, process, and benefits of Kombucha fermentation in a visual presentation. Kombucha is a seemingly magical microbial process that transforms sweetened tisanes into something entirely different, sour-sweet, bubbly, probiotic rich and delicious. Kombucha is a time honored and safe way to introduce a living food into your daily diet, easy to make at home and extremely nutritive.
We will go over kombucha brewing basics, tea, flavoring, vessels, sugars as well as advanced kombucha making techniques, bottle conditioning and what to do with all that SCOBY!
There will also be samples of HEX Ferments Kombucha and time for your questions about kombucha, vegetable fermentation and more! HEX Kombucha SCOBYs Kits will be available for sale as well.
